Orientation & Registration Schedules

Starting in late April, new students will begin receiving Orientation & Registration packets from the Augustana Office of Admissions. This packet will include everything you need to know and do to prepare for Orientation & Registration. See the event schedule below.

August Orientation schedule (Wednesday, August 19)

This event is for new first-year and transfer students (and their families) who are not yet registered for the fall term. Students attending this event may move in to their residence hall on this morning at no additional cost. The student may also choose to move in on Tuesday, August 18, but an additional charge of $25 will apply. Students should notify Residential Life (309-794-2686) of their move-in date in either case.

Students should allow about 45 minutes for the check-in process between 11 am and noon. Please bring:

  • Completed employment forms (Federal W-4, State W-4, and I9)
